MOTW 2/27/13: Hey. We can't help being great.
Batman Inc. #8
, reminiscing of the good old days and the big moment in case you didn't read the newspapers a day or two ago:
Uncanny X-men #2
, Scott and Emma OTP, and say hello to the powerful Goldball! Plus a look at the Xavier School's floorplan:
Uncanny X-Force #2
, Betsy plays Punch-Out, Puck plays Wolverine jr.
Dude specifically said that a lot of the time travel shit that is gonna pop up with Kang and Immortus and Rama-Tut won't be fully explained until issue 17.
I think Uncanny Avengers is gonna be one of the best books at Marvel now that it's gotten its' foothold.
especially as Cassaday is no longer on art duties
read this series whenever you get the chance, be it in trade or backissues or whatever i really don't care, just god damn
Narration, page 21: Overwhelmin' odds. No hope. A future so bleak I don't wanna be there. Things lookin' as dark as they can look. Times like this make a fella feel alive.
Last panel, page 21, Prowlvastator crushing buildings.
Dialogue: "I think that's our cue, amigos...
...Time for us ta 'bot up and save the world.
I actually had to look up who the heck the final page was referring to.
To further indicate which of the past few decades were the ones during which I did or did not read comics, my main reaction to the end of Uncanny Avengers #4 was:
Along with a couple of Avengers.
this is a whole new ballgame
The issue takes an interesting turn though when we learn the tracksuit draculas are maybe a little bit better connected than anyone assumed.
Ultimate Comics X-Men #23, the story of where she ended up in issue 11 to joining the final battle against stryker in issue 18
The Flash #17 Beautiful double page as always from Manupal, where Flash "defeats" grodd by having a mammoth trapped in the speed force chase him.
And the new design for the Reverse Flash!
An interesting development in Red Lanterns #17
"Ride or Die" confirmed Dominic Toretto, as they took off to find the Dragon Balls in hopes of reviving their friend Sonic
basically the whole issue I was thinking "what the heck, dude. you're better than this."
Also, Damien Wayne is a hero.

Noooope, sorry, X-treme X-Men #11 Scott and Dazzler OTP
Wrong! Howlett/Hercules OTP!
I expect Clint to only make bad decisions, but this issue was impressive even by those standards. Favorite issue of the week but I was cringing the whole time.
He didn't seem particularly surprised they were pissed.
Fairly lighthearted issue, with Ock being called by the FF for an important task.....
The story basically revolves around the Time Variance Authority coming
And at the end we get a look at things to come.
It was Sophie's Choice picking those 5 pages heh
I really like that it has an overarching plot and a consistent writer now, while still being a team-up book
The next issue is called "Kill Thor"
I love the pop art trippyness of this sequence featuring Loki rescuing Billy and Teddy from a dimensional prison that is essentially a bunch of comic panels.
And then, as Loki is wont to do, he says what we have all been thinking.
He's an asshole. And because his powers, like Captain Britain's, come from self-confidence, he feels this is a license to be a smug bully that cheats on his girlfriend.
Basically, being a cocky dick gives him the strength to be an even cockier dick so basically he's invincible, right?
hm. perhaps not so much.
